One of the things that the little ones are most excited about at this time of year is decorating the house for Christmas. If you can’t think of where to start, we propose a nice project that you can do yourself with elements that you have at home and a good dose of imagination. It is a very nice craft to share with your children that both you and they will fully enjoy. To inspire you, we leave you ten DIY Nativity scenes to make with the little ones.
Easy nativity scenes, with recycled boats
This Nativity scene is made with small recycled jars, medicine containers, spice jars, any type of container or small jar that you use at home … You can keep them and when the time comes, cover them with pretty papers or fabric scraps, stick a little circle of cardboard for the face and with fabric and cords, make the cloaks. Children will be much more creative than us and will make beautiful characters.
Easy nativity scenes, to print
Another Nativity scene to print, this time you will have to paste each character on cardboard, and if you want them to remain to stand, you can paste a piece of wood from behind. You can download the file with all the characters here.
Easy nativity scenes, with pots
Using wooden balls and small terracotta pots as a body, we can make a simple but very beautiful Nativity scene. We paint the pots of the desired color and glue them upside down on the base. We glue the wooden balls that will be the heads on top, we color them, and with a piece of felt, we make the mantle. The imagination and creativity of the little ones will give you the ideas to make each character different and special.
Easy nativity scenes, with wood
Pieces of wood for dolls like those seen in the image are sold in craft stores, consisting of a cylinder with a sphere on top. We can use them to make the Nativity Scene, painting them with acrylics.
